    Default 1st Major Upgrade & Whooooo Nellie!!!

    Recently bought an Adcom GFA 5500 from Tom T (thanks for the great deal, Tom!). Relegated my NAD C320Bee IA to preamp duty, hooked up the Adcom, spun Robert Cray, "Shame + a Sin" & whooooo doggies!, what a difference!

    I've loved my NAD - it's a terrific IA - but the Adcom makes my RTA12C's SINGALICIOUS! The NAD packs a lot into its 50 wpc, but the Adcom brings much more power & finally graduates me into Cfrizz's 200 wpc club. I'm listening to Eric Clapton's, "Me and Mr. Johnson" right now &, while I'm not hearing anything I've never heard before, I'm hearing everything waaaaay better than I've ever heard it before!

    The Adcom digs deeper into & tightens the bass & adds incredible slam & punch! These are terms that I've not understood - until now. My speakers have bloomed and literally everything sounds much clearer than ever before.

    Wow! I just joined Ben's Adcom fan club & I couldn't be happier! Just diggin' the music! Whooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    Thumbs up

    :D Congrats BF!!!! Enjoy relistening to all of your favorite music with your new POWER amp!

    I don't just push 200wpc to be pushing it. I push it because it makes a BIG difference. If it didn't I wouldn't have it for myself or suggest it for others.

    Enjoy!:)

    You and that 200 watts Cathy. You crack me up. [in a good way, of course] ;)

    I clicked on to see what you had typed just knowing it had something to do with that "200". :D

    It did.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    :D It's not my 200 it's BF's 200 that has him woo hooin all over the place!

    All I did was congratulate him for finding out for himself.

    All I want is for people (who are interested) to get the best that they can out of their speakers, hopefully the first time around by purchasing more than adequate power.
